My Education and Professional Background

Associate of Arts Theatre 1984 Northwest Community College, Powell, WY; Bachelor of Arts Theatre, Philosophy Minor, 1986 Northern Arizona University, Flagstaff, AZ; Teaching Certification 1992 University of Washington, Seattle, WA; Master's Secondary Education 1998, Northern Arizona University, Chandler, AZ English 11 Hamilton High School 2000-Present; AP English Language and Composition HHS 2012-Present; Theatre/English HHS 1998-2000; 7th Grade English/US History Willis Jr. High 1994-1998

My Educational Philosophy

My job is to provide a variety of opportunities for students to encounter complex and diverse texts and to respond expressively, analytically, and rhetorically for a variety of purposes. Every grade is a balance between ability and work ethic. Students with advanced skill levels should be provoked into deeper thought. Students with less advanced skill levels should be recognized and honored for participation in the process. All students should be challenged.
